xPORT Business Accelerator at the TEDxPrague 2015

5 Nov

On 28th October, 2015, the TEDxPrague took place in Prague. The University of Economics, Prague, sent its own representatives to the event, whose objective was to promote the xPORT VŠE Business Accelerator.

TEDx is a non-profit initiative that organizes interdisciplinary conferences full of seminars about ‚ideas worth being shared‘. The main goal of this worldwide initiative is to share inspiring ideas and stories. The TEDxPrague was established in 2009, and it is a part of the worldwide movement TEDx.

The essential topic of the October TEDxPrague was ‚I have a dream‘. In addition to the seminars with many inspiring speakers, there was also an accompanying program. The xPORTu VŠE presentation in the lobby of the New Stage of the National Theatre was part of this program, where two teams who are currently taking part in the accelerator introduced themselves – the HUG port (simple contents management and control over a message displayed on the presentation device by a customer using his own mobile phone) and the Breathing Friend (an anti-stress and relaxation tool designed to set the right frequency rate of breathing). Both of the start-ups have received positive reactions from the visitors.

Thanks to the participation at the TEDx, the xPORT VŠE Business Accelerator has gained new beneficial contacts and supporters.
